by what's going on right now. >> as with ronald reagan and bill clinton, the second terms, you can see a few green sheets of the economy and if that begins to surge, david axelrod tells me later in the show, has a real chance. >> he has a huge agenda, a lot of opportunities and going to have to find a way to work with republicans not only in the senate but the house of representatives. let's see if he can do it. it's a huge, huge challenge and the responsibility is enormous, the opportunity is great. >> well, we have to see and itching to get to the party, wolf. >> love those people back there. did you hear the marching band? >> you know why i think they're so excited? your performance in skyfall. >> you were in "flight." >> that's why i wanted to mention it. >> i was in the james bond film. and you were in -- >> really great. really great for me. >> if you work really hard and play by the rules, some day maybe daniel craig and -- >> was it daniel craig or denzel washington oscar nominated? >> i don't know. >> it was denzel. do you know who helped him? me. >> let me point out. $1 billi
inaugural. but also theodore roosevelt, dwight eisenhower, ronald reagan. i look at it more as a form of relaxation for the president when we get to meet him. he gets to chew the fat a lit bit about past presidents. >> doris, you're a presidential expert, how do you rate president obama in the pantheon of great presidents? or just presidents? >> well, you know, when you think about the great presidents, great necessities call forth great leaders. so george washington, abraham lincoln, fdr had a huge crises to face. obama had a pretty big crisis to face. he did accomplish in health care something since presidents since teddy roosevelt have been trying to accomplish. but i think most importantly, we'll see now the fact that he's got a second term, that's really important to embolden him for what he can accomplish, and more importantly, to show that the country supported kurg a very difficult time his leadership and they wanted him back again. so i think he's got a shot. it depends a lot on what happens in the second term, if he can create -- i wish he would go in the midterms to try to
for partisanship and he'll be that when the time arises. this was answering ronald reagan from 32 years ago. his whole philosophy was intensively individualistic. president obama answered that today. and he said an old speech writers device. to repeat again and again, we the people, we the people. the first three words of our founding document. he embraces that, he said to ronald reagan, we're stronger together. and i thought it was powerful but philosophical. i thought this was obama at his best. >> i saw a lot of tweets from republicans saying this was a call for big government that he didn't reach out enough. >> there was partisanship. it is hard to deny when he directly rebuked the gop by saying we are not a country of takers. by defending the government level of programs, social security, medicare, medicaid. but directly rebuking paul ryan and the 47% comment that got mitt romney in trouble. there may have been high arching philosophical tones but there were also those tones. >> are you embracing the 47% comment? >> no, no, i wouldn't say, i don't know if it is fair to say it wasn't partisa
. ronald reagan's first inaugural speech was an economic speech. the context was inflation which was a threat to the country at that time. but most of others, bush was like that too, most of the other good ones, jefferson's first or whatever, they're really about the values that unite the country and then also try to put your moment in the broad long context of american history. why this is important and how we're led forward. without being a policy address, it says we have certain values that mean we have to confront certain problems. if i was working on this speech, which i'm not, i would address this problem of polarization, the deep divisions of our country, how we get passed that, achieve common purposes in this country and the president would benefit even in the partisan debates looking large in this speech. >> these inaugurations, second ones are ability healing, is the president in a healing state of mind. >> the way he first came to national attention was his famous 2004 democratic convention speech, most memorable line not red states of america or blue states but the un
at past inaugurations. ronald reagan's second inauguration remains the coldest on record and for that reason, they actually took it indoors. we'll be right back. >> i, ronald reagan, do solemnly swear -- >> i, ronald reagan, do solemnly swear -- >> that i will faithfully execute -- >> that i will faithfully execute -- >> the office of president of the united states -- >> the office of president of the united states -- >> and will to the best of my ability -- >> and will to the best of my ability -- >> preserve, protect, and defend -- >> preserve, protect, and defend -- >> the constitution of the united states -- >> the constitution of the united states -- >> so help me god. >> so help me god. >> my congratulations, sir. ever have a really cool dream? i'm having one right now. i don't want to be disturbed. and i won't. because before i went to sleep, i set this. now my iphone knows not to ring, unless it's important. 'cause disturbing this would just be .. wrong. thor gets great rewards for his small business! your boa! [ garth ] thor's small business earns double miles o
but he's got to make it the law of the land. >> most presidents had been hit by this curse. ronald reagan has the iran contra scandal. they all seem to get unsettled and unravelled by a big event often beyond their control. barack obama, we don't know what it may be. it may be nothing. he has the green shoot for a better economy. hi didn he didn't have that four years ago. is that going to be a significant help to him? >> think about second term dwight eisenhower. he created nasa. he signed a treaty with 12 countries to demilitaryize an antartica. ronald reagan, i think iran contra gets overblown. the president is feeling good about a second term. he doesn't have the luxury of a curse mentality. >> what are your priorities. what would you like to see the president focus on? they say in the second term you get a maximum of about 18 months to shove through the agenda that you want to do. what should he look to do? >> there's all the stuff that's been on the table that's been talked about in the media, immigration reform, gun control and a couple of other issues. i'd like to see him work on
of where george w. bush was in 2005 but seven points behind bill clinton. >> ronald reagan had the same rating as bill clinton at 62% and richard nixon was down to 51% in 1973. both lyndon johnson and dwight eisenhower topped everyone here, they reached the low 70s. they were at 71% and 73% respentively. >> that's pretty impressive. >> those numbers would never exit tod exist today. >>> thousands of people are starting to descend this morning. >> never too early to get ready. this morning, though, we'll look past the oath of office to the next four years. the issues, the plans, the prospects. as joe johns reports, some of the most notorious scandals also happened in the second term. >> reporter: president obama has high hopes for the next four years. >> i intend to carry out the agenda that i campaigned on. >> reporter: if he wants to reach that goal, history says a second-term president has got to move fast. >> power does seep away from the presidency very quickly in the second term. >> second term presidents and their congresses have two different clocks and the president's clock is n
model for him would be bill clinton's inaugural address, or ronald reagan's second inaugural. both of those were similar kinds of political environments. congress was in the hands of the other party. or one house was, at least. and each of them was very gracious towards the other party. reached out, said things about the goodwill of the other party. >> the difference there is reagan could look back and talk about how the republicans worked with democrats to fix social security, bill clinton could look back and talk about the deficit reduction plan. other things they had done a little bit together. it's harder for president obama to do that because there's been so much polarization. >> polarization has been on both sides. it would be a good step for the president, i actually don't expect him to take it. to try to put that behind, to have at least a rhetorical frame for being more enveloping. obviously in the last few days, last week or so, he hasn't taken that tact. he's, he had his press conference about a week ago. he's had some, they've floated some stories about how they're goin
. this is when ronald reagan started his second term and bill cl clinton here up at 60%. a low point in terms of his three most recent predecessor as a two-term president. but a high point for this president. if you look at this here, this goes back through the carter presidency and george h.w. bush presidency and you see, again, a low mark for any president in modern time. thinks things in the country are going well, but better for him if you look at the obama presidency here. now, here's a question here. what kind of president will the president obama be in his second term? 54%, majority of americans think he is above average or outstanding. that is a good number for the president. but you see, again, just over 40% of americans say he is below average or poor. a partisan divide and this shows you why. the american people, look at that number. 76% of americans think the country is more deeply divided than in the past. unity bringing people together and getting the government to work is a big challenge of the president's second inaugural address. 70% of americans are hopeful that the presiden
under oath. clinton got to stay in office when the senate acquitted him. and for ronald reagan, it was iran contra. >> a few months ago, i told the american people, i did not trade arms for hostages. my heart and my best intentions still tell me that's true, but the facts and the evidence tell me it is not. >> reporter: the scandal led to investigations, indictments, and a weakened white house for reagan's final two years in office. if somehow president obama avoids all that, there's still a chance of an unforeseen crisis. >> you have to expect the unexpected in the second term. >> reporter: the soviet union shot down an american u-2 spy plane during dwight eisenhower's last year as president. and george w. bush's second term was bookended by emergencies, hurricane katrina's destruction of the gulf coast early on, the financial meltdown at the end. and after eight years, those moments of crisis could determine a president's legacy. >> when you're in the second term, you have no -- nothing left to run for, except a place in history. >> reporter: a number of presidents in their s
time since ronald reagan's second ina inauguration lit be a formality. law requires it tot be sworn in on the 20th. today, they were. >> please raise your right hand, and repeat after me. i, barack hussein obama, do solemnly swear. >> i, barack hussein obama, do solemnly swear. >> that i will faithfully execute. >> that i will faithfully execute. >> the office of president of the united states. >> the office of president of the united states. >> and will to the best of my ability. >> and will to the best of my ability. >> preserve, protect and defend. >> preserve, protect and defend. >> the constitution of the united states. >> the constitution of the united states. >> so help you god. >> so help me god. >> congratulations, mr. president. >> thank you, mr. chief justice. thank you so much. >> congratulations. >> chief justice john roberts administering the oath. last time he fumbled the words. this time he nailed it. president obama using the family bible today. a lot to talk about tonight. vice president biden took the oath earlier at his residents. it too went off without a hitch.

think he has to be careful about sort of promising too much. >> as an orator, think of ronald reagan and some of his speeches we remember to this day and thinking back on president obama's speeches, other than the ones on the campaign trail, i think about the newtown, because that was where he got emotional, but it was -- it's a different kind of rhetoric and oration and must be a decision by him, the mantle of president he feels is different? >> what i can say about this one, there's nothing tougher to do as a speech giver than what he's about to do. the problem that you have when you're dealing with the inaugural address is you have to deal with the present and you have to deal with the past and the future. you have to deal with the audience in flont of you. you will have a million people. right in front of you. but you also are dealing with people around the world. it is hard to do any one of those well. tough do them all the same time and can't go on forever. i think that he is going to want to do well tomorrow. i think he knows that there are people out there saying that this is
.c., to the stunning west side of the capitol where we've been swearing in our presidents since ronald reagan. of course, for political junkies, the inauguration is about history. for the rest of us, us fashion junkies it's about what they're going to wear, what will michelle obama wear tonight? i probably should say who will she wear? because one appearance on the first lady can make or break a fashion designer. and no one can tell this story for us like alina cho. >> first lady michelle obama. >> reporter: when first lady michelle obama walked out on stage in that memorable white gown by jason woo, overnight the designer became a household name. take me to that moment where she walked out. >> i was like, that's me! >> reporter: who will be the lucky one for years later? >> it's really brilliant what she's done in keeping it secret, i have to say. in the previous administrations while there was always interest in what the first lady wore there was never a red carpet moment. >> reporter: sources close to the process say what started out as a 20 designer field for the inaugural gown has whittl
be the liberal ronald reagan? could he be someone who could articulate liberalism in terms that were motivating, that were deeply rooted in american values, and moved the country in his direction? i think this speech was the first signal that he has that potential. this is not just ghazi, happy talk, hope and change, kumbaya. this was him staking a claim to a different kind of patriotism. and saying that in order for us to be who the founders want us to be, we have toticontinue to include the dr. kings and the latino community and everybody else. that was powerful. >> let's take a look at a moment a lot of people have been talking ability. one of president obama's open mike moments. i did get the sense, i mean, you're saying he's not going to see this again. you got the sense in his making that speech that he's not going to make a speech like that -- he doesn't have an opportunity to make a speech like that again in this moment in history, in this moment in his presidency, and i felt like these were a number of things he wanted to say. >> i think he was speaking to history. he has spent a lot o
ronald reagan, and there were some of his speeches we remember to this day, and yet if you think back on the last four years, other than the ones on the campaign trail, i think about newtown, that was where he got emotional, it was a -- it's a different kind of rhetoric and otheration. is it the mantle of president that he feels is different? >> there's nothing tougher to do as a speech giver than what he's about to do. the problem you have when you're dealing with the inaugural address, you have to deal with the present, the past and the future. you have to deal with the audience in front of you. you're going to have a million people in front of you. you're also dealing with people around the world. it's hard to do any of those well, you have to do them at the same time. i think he's going to want to do well tomorrow. i think he knows there are people out there that are going to say, this is the last big speech from obama. unless there's a war or something like that, there's pressure on him to do well. i think if i were advising him in this position, he has to sound the tone that he
them, this is ronald reagan speaking, urging them to listen to the american public and to the law enforcement community and support a ban on the further manufacturer of military-style assault weapons. [ applause ] and finally, congress needs to help rather than hinder law enforcement as it does its job. we should get tougher on people who buy guns, with the expressed purpose of turning around and selling them to criminals. and we should severely punish anybody who helps them do this. since congress hasn't confirmed a director of the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms in six years, they should confirm todd jones who will be, who has been acting, and i will be nominating, for the post. [ applause ] and at a time when budget cuts are forcing many communities to reduce their police force, we should put more cops back on the job and back on our streets. let me be absolutely clear. like most americans, i believe the second amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. i respect our strong tradition of gun ownership and the rights of hunters and sportsmen. there are million
? we'll talk about that. >>> we've been taking a look -- ronald reagan's second inauguration remain the coldest on record, believe it or not, if you're keeping track. for that reason, they took it indoors. we'll be right back. >> i, ronald reagan, do solemnly swear -- >> i, ronald reagan, do solemnly swear -- >> that i will faithfully execute -- >> that i will faithfully executed -- >> the office of president of the united states. >> the office of president of the united states. >> and will to the best of my ability -- >> and will to the best of my ability -- >> preserve, protect, and defend -- >> preserve, protect, and defend -- >> the constitution of the united states. >> the constitution of the united states. >> so help me god. >> so help me god. wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. britta olsen is my patient. i spend long hours with her checking her heart rate, administering her medication, and just making her comfortable. one night britta told me about a tradition in denmark, "when a person dies,
president in terms of raising it, the winner is ronald reagan at 17 times. that might shock people who like to see him as the paragon of responsible spending. >> we'll start with the deficit, shrinking more rapidly than at any time since the end of the korean war. in the end of december, we had a deficit for the month of $260 million, not $260 billion, $260 million. which in washington is almost the budget. that's the smallest monthly deficit in five years. some of that is artificial. people pulling transactions forward because they were afraid of higher tax rates in 2013. but for the first three months of 2013, we have a rapidly shrinking fiscal 2013, we have a rapidly shrinking deficit. so we are in a way chasing a vanishing problem. >> which is interesting, and that would allow for some things that are dirty and things that are not so dirty, would completely perhaps get rid of this problem after a while. do you think we're headed for a full stalemate? >> it's such a shame. i think david is right because we have low debt service right now. we're paying less interest on our debt than we ha
think ronald reagan was the last time. and what's really interesting, because president obama has to be sworn in tomorrow, and then he'll be sworn in again on monday, he actually is the first president since fdr to be sworn in four times. of course, don, fdr was sworn in four times because he served four terms. and that's not the case for president obama. you remember there was that number flub last time and it was redone out of an abundance of caution. >> look at all these moving hands. this place is getting crazy. they have moving advance coming in, part for the media, part for the festivities. part what the president is going to do. so it's really gearing up. look how beautiful the shot is. see the sunset? >> gorgeous. the capitol is a beautiful building and now it's almost a beautiful pink color right now. and that, of course, the west front of the building is where the inauguration will take place, right behind us. >> so what have you heard about the speech? >> the themes are set. we know that. there is still some major tweaking being done at this point but the themes are pr
economy hostage right now, he has to be careful about promising too much. >> you think about ronald reagan, and there were some of his speeches we remember to this day, and yet if you think back on the last four years, other than the ones on the campaign trail, i think about newtown, that was where he got emotional, it was a -- it's a different kind of rhetoric and otheration. is it the mantle of president that he feels is dink? different? >> there's nothing tougher to do as a speech giver than what he's about to do. the problem you have when you're dealing with the inaugural address, you have to deal with the present, the past and the future. you have to deal with the audience in front of you. you're going to have a million people in front of you. you're also dealing with people around the world. it's hard to do any of those well, you have to do them at the same time. i think he's going to want to do well tomorrow. i think he knows there are people out there that are going to say, this is the last big speech from obama. unless there's a war or something like that, there's pressure on him
into the history books. for the first time in a long time, the first time since the ronald reagan second inaugurati inauguration, it will all be a formality. law requires presidents and vice presidents be sworn in on the 20th. today the 20th, they were in two quiet ceremonies. >> please raise your right hand and repeat after me. i, barack hussein obama, do solemnly swear that i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states, and will to be best of my ability preserve, protect and defend the constitution of the united states so help me god. >> congress gratulations, mr. president. >> thank you chief justice. >> last time the chief justice fumbled the words, this time he nailed it. president obama using a family bible today. tomorrow he'll use the lincoln bible. a lot to talk about tonight, vice president biden took the oath earlier, his residence the naval observatory. sonia sotomayor doing the honors there. yesterday during a surprise appearance at the iowa inaugural ball the vice president did -- well, sort of a joe biden. >> i'm proud to be president of the united states. bu
and be welcomed into the history books. for the first time in a long time, the first time since the ronald reagan second inauguration, it will all be a formality. that's because it happened on the 21st but law requires the presidents and vice presidents be sworn in on the 20th. so today, the 20th, in two quiet ceremonies they were. >> please raise your right hand and repeat after me. i, barack hussein obama, do solemnly swear that i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states. >> the office of president of the united states. >> and will to the best of my ability. >> and will to the best of my ability. >> preserve, protect and defend. >> preserve, protect and defend. >> the constitution of the united states. >> the constitution of the united states. >> so help you god. >> so help me god. >> congratulations, mr. president. >> thank you mr. chief justice, thank you so much. >> chief justice roberts administering the oath. last time, the chief justice fumbled the words, this time he nailed it. president obama using a family bible today. tomorrow he'll use the lincoln bible. a
. >>> welcome back to the west front of the capitol, where we've been inaugurating our presidents since ronald reagan. behind me is where the president will take the public oath surrounded by all the vip seating. the families, the obama family, the biden family, and then not far behind them, members of the u.s. senate. i am joined now by a u.s. senator, a new u.s. senator from the state of maine, an independent, senator angus king. nice to have you here today. >> good morning. great day for america. >> we talked about vip seating. this is your fourth inauguration, and this is the best seating you've ever had. >> the seats are getting better all the time. the first time was with my dad when i was 8 years old, standing down on pennsylvania avenue for eisenhower's inauguration. i was at george w. bush's and then obama's last time. a lot warmer today than 2009. it's just a great day. >> reporter: and you have the best view you've had yet. senator, you're independent. you said you wanted to come to washington to shake things up. is that what washington needs. does it need to calm things down? >> i
'd be back. i think -- he's older than -- he would be older than ronald reagan when he ran for president the first time. he looks in great shape. nobody likes it better. >> he's doing a little rope line over there. you see some young kids. he decides that he's going to improvise a little bit. he's right down -- right below us over here in our area. >> just what the secret service do not want to hear, the vice president is improvising. >> yeah, this is -- you see, he's a natural born politician. >> this is joe biden in his element. he's a little different than all those parades in wilmington, delaware, july 4th parades. >> that was a member of the secret service saying, please, mr. president, don't go to the side again. >> he's having a good time. >> he's become so much more -- correct me if i'm wrong, jeffrey, the last few weeks, he seems to be everywhere, joe biden. >> i think that really is -- it's no coincidence that people are talking more about his run being for president. he closed the deal on the debt ceiling with mitch mcconnell. he was the spokesman for the gun initiative. these
and the last time that we saw this was 1985 with ronald reagan. where inauguration day as said in the constitution falls on a sunday, then the big public ceremony traditionally has then been held on the monday. what this means, though, and this is something that i find very fascinating, is that president obama, as of tomorrow, after he's been sworn in, will have been sworn in four times because of that flub back in 2009 and because of the fact that inauguration day falls on a sunday. the last time that happened, fdr, he was sworn in four times simply because he served four terms, not because of these interesting circumstances, gloria. >> bri, you mentioned that infamous flub four years ago where they were on different pages as the oath played out. what are they doing to prevent that from happening, again? >> we don't know exactly, john. but i think it's fair to say i think they will be on the same page this time. as we heard from jeffrey toobin, there was a bit of a miscommunication. the chief justice had it planned out where he was going to pause and that information was sent
, the hottest or the warmest inaugural in our history was the first ronald reagan inaugural, january 20th, 1981. it was 55 degrees. president reagan in a suit. nobody bundled up. that's a spring day the president had in january 1981. four years later he had the coldest inaugural in our history, it was 7 degrees at noon on january 21st, 1985. the sore moaneny, notice the difference, the ceremony was moved indoors. afternoon a windchill of minus 10 degrees to minus 20 degrees. a cold day for president reagan. what do we expect for president obama? we are told to expect temperature somewhere in the ballpark of 44 degrees when the president steps to the west front of the capitol tomorrow. as you note it is a beautiful day today. we expect another beautiful day here tomorrow. nobody's wearing overcoats. our friends on the mall here are out enjoying what we call a beach day in washington, anderson. remember four years ago we were bundled up. this feels kind of nice. >> it's beautiful here. inside -- insider is revealing the moment that changed the relationship between president obama and hillary clin
for presidents often embroil presidents in scandal. ronald reagan had iran-contra, bill clinton had monica lewinsky. i'm partial to sex scandals. obviously i would never hope for that for our president. i would hope that nothing like that would ever consume his presidency. however, we do know that second terms are often a grab bag of congressional investigation. >> yeah. so how much time, maria, do you think the president will really have to focus on whichever issues, whatever order you want to look at them at, minus the scandals, we hope? how much time will he have to really get anything done? >> not a lot. we're already seeing a lot of movement and talk about the 2014 mid terms and how difficult it's going to be for either republicans to do what they need to do on immigration, for example, because the people in their districts don't want it. we're already seeing a lot of talk about how some of these issues will be difficult for democrats in red states who want to keep their seats in the senate. the president needs to do this now and republicans would be smart to do a lot of this now so t
. so, ronald reagan used to call it like an eight-star hotel because you had to pay for the amenities. >> i guess right now they have a garden, right? michelle obama can get fresh veggies and fruits out of the backyard. >> but she wasn't the first one to do that. that actually happened under -- i'll tell you exactly. wait, wait, wait, oh, no. john adams. john adams was the first person to put in the vegetable guarden. >> gardening back in the day. there you go. i like that factoid. >> i thought it was michelle. >> felicia taylor, thank you so much. as we're talking white house, we're talking white house just because of the inauguration this upcoming monday. today we're looking beyond the fun and festivities and breaking down the challenges the president will face in his final term. coming up, a look at one of his biggest jobs. >>> but first, next month we will begin introducing you to a new group of amazing people. you know them as our cnn heroes. this will be for 2013. want you to first take a look at the young woman from nepal who you named the 2012 cnn hero of the year. >> for 29-y
'll take it. remember it was ronald reagan in 1985 where festivities were actually canceled because the high was 17 degrees, and lower than that throughout the day. so this is pretty good. >> i got to say, it's kind of perfect. robin meade, don lemon and christi paul are along with us along the parade route. robin, i know you were out in the cold of the morning. a lot of people we saw, it's been a good day for hand warmers and body warmers. everybody going through security had them in their gloves and in their shoes and in their coats. >> they are the item of the day. i'll tell you that much. to give you an example of what people here went through, to get through security to go to the parade, to me it felt a little different than getting through security to get to the national mall. it feels more stringent here on the parade route, because if you look, see how close people are able to be to the parade route, compared to the blocks and the blocks on the mall. so when we went through security, they asked us -- it was very hands-on. they took away our diet soda cans. no cans allowed. t
